Cornerstone fridge defrost drain

Does anyone know where the fridge defrost drain is. Have occasional water in front of the refrigerator coming from underneath. Of course when I took to the shop, no water leaked. Only thing I can think might be cause is the defrost line. Any suggestions.

I also thought mine was leaking, turned out in my case the ice dispenser seems to hold an ice cube in the shoot and would melt and drip out. Water would be in front of the door. Now I make sure ice cubes are out.

fridge drain

K & J - in my S & B, we've got a side by side GE fridge. The drain hole is in the freezer side, under the bottom basket or tray slide. It drains to an evaporation tray under the fridge. I can only relay what happened to ours. Not sure if you may have the same or similar problem going on.
We would experience a small puddle of water on the floor on the freeze side on occasion. By pulling the basket/tray, I could carefully chip a small build up of ice that had built up. Then take a turkey baster and squirt hot water down the drain hole. This had happened off and on for a few years. Last year, we had our whole fridge noticeably warmer (ice cream not fully frozen, and the refrigerator side not getting as cool as it should).
A tech had to replace a thermometer/sensor on the back wall of the freezer. That part would have been simple except the whole condenser/freezer unit had a full block of ice build up. That necessitated us removing all the contents on both sides and finding alternative short term storage while the fridge defrosted. Took 24hrs to defrost but has worked flawlessly since.
Again, don't know if you have this issue but....
Tom

Yep. Same here. Check the drain inside the fridge for ice blockage. Easily cured with warm water and maybe some 'gentle' prodding with some thin wire. You might have to remove an internal cover to get to the drain hole.

Thanks for the responses. Will check both, but leaning towards the defrost drain since we don't use the ice maker. Again, much thanks.
